W-2p - Working with Populations Who are Incarcerated: Best Practices for Trauma-Informed Teaching

2:00 - 2:50 PM

Increasingly, community colleges around the country are offering college courses to people who are incarcerated. This workshop is designed to help faculty who are teaching or working with this population to understand the research on working with students who have higher than average rates of trauma as well as living in very controlled institutional environments. This workshop is specifically designed for faculty who are teaching or planning to teach incarcerated students. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about best practices in adult education; best practices for trauma-informed teaching; supports for working with incarcerated populations; and methods for self-care. Participants will learn how teaching can be transformed to encourage not just academic learning but also post-traumatic growth for students.
